Yes, but not with animal figures! Sad I only think I still can find some that they made in 1998, like the magellanic penguin, puffin and otters.

A shame, i always like sealife, although they seem to make the same species over and over again.
But the orca would have suited me... Laughing

Yes, I'm indeed also tired of seeing the very same marine species day after day. It seems like only Safari ltd broke the clichés by releasing such unseen aquatic species as a Shark Ray, a Black Loosjaw, a Hatchet Fish, a Dragonfish, a Sally Lightfoot Crab, a Hermit Crab, a Leafy Seadragon, a Weedy Seadragon, a Batstar, a Basking Shark, a Coelacanth, a Leopard Shark, a Zebra Shark, etc, etc, etc. Despite their "Made in China" labels, I like Safari ltd for the researches they make for new unseen species to release; Schleich is seriously slowing down its researches and tend to repeat the very same common species year after year. And they don't even bother to keep their long-time portugese production... scratch Evil or Very Mad

I got them. All 3 of Schleich's retired whales. Recently I have a great interest about sea life, so that's how it's being expressed! cheers

Thank you Susanne! Glad you like the photos Very Happy
Indeed, it's better to collect from a variety of brands. I've learned the lesson the "hard way"... Razz

Congrats Gab! Schleich wales are the oldest Schleich I remember. As I say very often I know the brand for a long time but I always was neutral with it but I remember perfectly the first time I saw the wales. I'm not a big enthusiast of this kind of stuff but they are really impressive. :)
